CSE A C++ Servlet Environment for High-Performance Web Applications
Thomas Gschwind and Benjamin A. Schmit, Technische Universität Wien
Current environments for web application development focus on Java or
scripting languages. Developers
that want to or have to use C or C++ are left behind with little
options. We have developed a C/C++ Servlet Environment (CSE) that
provides a high performance servlet engine for C and C++. One of the
biggest challenges we have faced while developing this environment was
to come up with an architecture that provides high performance while
not allowing a single servlet to crash the whole servlet environment,
a serious risk with C and C++ application development. In this paper
we explain our architecture, the challenges and trade-offs we have
faced, and compare the performance of our environment to that of top
servlet environments available today.
